Do you like to travel? Do you like to cook (or want to learn)? In this enrichment experience, we will travel with our tastebuds! Each week, we will learn about a different country, including: Scotland, Italy, France, South Africa, and Japan. We will explore elements of each country’s culture, and then focus on the culinary culture by creating a recipe from the country as an extension activity between sessions. During our last session, we will be joined by a guest speaker, and you will have the opportunity to create a dish from a country of your choosing.

This enrichment experience will meet weekly on Thursdays at 2:00 pm. The session will run for six weeks starting the week of June 19th.

Instructor will contact each enrolled student with more information, and a list of any required materials.
